MacGyver has another trick up his sleeve.
CBS has expanded the action drama’s fourth season by adding nine additional episodes to its existing 13 episode order.
That takes MacGyver Season 4 up to a full 22-episode season, which will run into summer 2020.
More importantly, the order bodes well for MacGyver Season 5 renewal, despite the show getting shunted to midseason for its fourth season.
Our well-placed insiders say that while a decision on Season 5 hasn’t yet been sealed, the order is a positive sign for the show’s future.

Joining his team on high-risk missions around the globe is maverick former CIA agent Jack Dalton and Patricia Thornton, ex-field agent turned director of operations and Riley Davis, an unpredictable computer hacker with a chip on her shoulder. At home, MacGyver is entertained by his ambitious roommate, Wilt Bozer. Under the aegis of the Department of External Services, MacGyver takes on the responsibility of saving the world, armed to the teeth with resourcefulness and little more than bubble gum and a paper clip.
